Seed Capital

You’re starting out on an exciting journey and we’re here to help you. To grow, you’re going to need capital and that is why we’re here. We’ll be the ones to take the first chance on you. We’ll take the big risk to back you when you’re small and stand by you as you grow.

 We’re Entrepreneurs Too

The first thing that makes us different is that we have all been entrepreneurs too. We’ve founded companies, built markets, raised capital and successfully exited. We’ve walked a mile in your shoes and that gives us a unique perspective on what it takes to be successful as a technology entrepreneur.

Research

We’re very curious people, constantly trying to figure out what it takes to find the right product market fit, what it takes to get that first revenue and then tradition from startup to scaleup. To help us understand this better, we partner with the Impact Centre at the University of Toronto to conduct research into best practices in technology commercialization. You can check out our research by clicking on the link.

Corporate Development

We don’t just put in money. No, that’s for other VCs. What we like to do is help you develop as a corporation. We’ll help you assess markets, improve leadership and raise capital. We have close ties in the Valley and in China and we’ll work to prepare for fund raising wherever it makes sense. We’ll also make th introductions and guide you through the process.
